hey jglynn....

i like that MJH song.... and i guess jerry's "stagge lee" is an extension of what mississippi john was singing about...? what stagger lee a "real" person?

anyway, i like elements of stagger lee but.... but..... with an ear to being honest, i've tried, but.... i just cant love 'stagger'. the best i can do is say it has some good elements, but it's not like "sugaree" or "loser".... songs i seem to be able to listen to, truly, ad nauseum.....!

cheers my man.... (how's the weather out on the island?)

Nice - been sunny and warm past few days. This whole Global Warming trend is good as far as not burning as much heating oil, however, since my house is only 4-5 feet above Sea Level it could get very problematic very quick if that Antarctic Ice decides to melt.

And, Yes apparently the Stagger Lee song is based on actual events.
